FunTrivia.com NHL tipping competition, aka, let's see who wins the most brawls on skates:
  • He continues to cut the lead, but with one week to go, and Sypher's superior countback numbers, Howie would have to outdo Sypher by four next week. Anything is possible!
  • No, those five S's are not a misprint! N-Bomb took last week's shutout on bonus points to heart and took five, giving him 40.
  • Unless illiniman14 can have a stellar week next week, he will probably miss the podium.
  • The final buzzer sounds next Saturday. Any prospects who will win the Cup?
Just remember: Ice hockey is a form of disorderly conduct in which the score is kept. (LeoDaVinci)

[color:"orange"]Comp Notes
  • Default is the lesser of r-1 (road wins minus one) or wooden spoon score. Late starters will enter the comp alongside last place
  • 1 bonus point for picking a result solo ... or one of two, provided 12 tippers lodge tips for the round
  • bonus pt for perfect picks, or near miss 13+/15
  • Tips of all homes (or all homes bar one) or all aways (or all aways bar one) are NOT eligible for bonus points
  • Dead-heats : Weekly wins vs wooden spoon countback will determine podium finishes (if they are identical, bonus points will be used)
  • Deadline : Drop of the puck of the first game each round ... default score will apply if tips are lodged after the 1st game has started

I think five in one round is a record. I got it in FLC this season, and I think you are only the second overall.

FunTrivia.com NHL tipping competition, aka, let's see who wins the most brawls on skates:
  • Sypher has won the NHL tipping comp, despite a strong surge at the end by Howie72.
  • N-Bomb wasn't happy with just forty bonus points, and had one left in him. That 41 will be hard to beat next year, sir!
  • Other than ozzz2002, no one else had double digit bonus points.
  • As I will be back in the driver's seat for NBA next year, thank you for the opportunity to take this one for the year, and I give the reins back to LeoDaVinci for next year so I can get back to basketball.
  • The table for most prizes is below.
Just remember: Ice hockey is a form of disorderly conduct in which the score is kept. (LeoDaVinci)

[color:"orange"]Comp Notes
  • Default is the lesser of r-1 (road wins minus one) or wooden spoon score. Late starters will enter the comp alongside last place
  • 1 bonus point for picking a result solo ... or one of two, provided 12 tippers lodge tips for the round

Congrats to Sypher, Howie72, srini for their podium finishes. Also to N-Bomb for getting all of them bonus points.

Thanks to Dave for doing all the math. Considering that a Texan probably doesn't know how to play ice hockey, you did pretty well!

See you all when the ice freezes over again!

Thank you Dave for maintaining this comp, congrats to the other two podium winners and thank you to all !!!
It's always nice to do well in a sport that you have no idea whose who except for what you might have seen in the movies (Go Ducks).
